Located in the Adams Morgan neighborhood, this authentic Ethiopian eatery is named after the calendar month that marks the end of a long rainy season in Ethiopia. Accordingly, the ceiling of the three-level dining room is painted with a bright yellow sunburst. The restaurant is also adorned with low tables that are ideal for the standard method of eating–with the hands. The menu offers a wide selection of traditional fare, including watts (stews) and gored gored (lean beef dipped in awaze, a milled pepper sauce). All dishes are served with injera, a crepe-like bread used as a utensil.
